    Hello all. I know it's not usually recommended to identify stones from pictures but hoping you might have a few suggestions about the one in this bar brooch. I haven't tested the metal yet but think it is sterling. Is it some kind of agate? I haven't been able to find similar yet but I'm sure they're out there! Feedback appreciated, thanks!

    The brooch seems to have similar dark spots, so you might be right with wood fossil
